Description

Enunciates many ways one can prepare oneself for meditation - from work and prayer to the yogas of Karma, Bhakti, Raja and Jnana.

The practice of meditation is one of the most essential, and yet one of the most difficult, of all the processes the human mind can be engaged in. More than just having quite place to sit and a little concentration, mediation in spiritual life means consistently being able to turn one's mind towards the Supreme Being.
